The snow-capped Tungurahua Volcano is a very active stratovolcano that towers over the lush green landscape of the city of Banos, Ecuador.  Tungurahua translates to "Throat of Fire" in the local Quechuan Indian dialect.  Banos has become an adventure destination for tourists and is known as the "Gateway to the Amazon" because of its location on the Pastaza River in the Amazon River Basin.
